Nano 7g low tech tank

I wanted to build a nano tank in my office since I think I need some green aquatic zone instead of boring monitor screen. The problem is I can't not bring any CO2 equipment in the office, also not to make noise or water leak with a filter. So I decided to build a nano tank without using any filter and CO2 injection. Here we go.

Cubic 30x30x30 cm tank :

Put soil in the tank, this soil layer is around 3 cm. I used a local organic soil :

Cover the soil with a layer of pebble, this layer is round 4cm. I used 2-4mm pebble here :

Fill up the tank with dechlorinated water to avoid killing beneficial bacteria:

Plants which I used for this tank, only easy to grow plant :

For lighting, I used a height adjustable table lamp with a 20w compact florescent bulb. The height adjustable lamp will help to adjust the amount of light.

1 day after setup :

I also made a video of my setup here :
Note : Turn the subtitle on, I added all detail in the subtitle.
